Today we have the 25th anniversary of the IBM PC standard - the first IBM PC computer was introduced on August 12, 1981. The PC World site announced The 25 Greatest PCs of All Time ranking, made by it's editors. What's important: they look not only at IBM PC standard, but at the personal computers of really all time. What it has to do with Atari? Of course, it has something! The 14th place was taken by Atari 800, designed by great Jay Miner. Part game machine, part productivity enhancer, the $999 Atari 800 was the first home computer to feature a custom video coprocessor in addition to its CPU, which was the same 8-bit 6502 used in the Apple II.
The 7th place was taken by Commodore Amiga 1000, produced by Atari's biggest rival, but designed again by Jay Miner. And the very winner is Apple II.

Tak, szkoda, że zmarł, na pewno stworzyłby jeszcze coś ciekawego. Ciekawe, że obie korporacje pozbyły się go.
